, the Left Banke's followup to 'Walk Away Renee', reached #15 in early
1967. The melody, with elements of the Lydian (raised fourth) and Mixolydian
(flatted seventh) modes, attracted the attention of Leonard Bernstein, who
analyzed it on his 'Anatomy of Pop' TV special around that time.

Verse 1:
Eb Ab Eb
I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Eb Ab Eb
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
Eb Ab Eb
I asked her for this dance and then she obliged me
Bbm Absus4 Ab
Was I surprised, yeah
Db Gb Bb Eb Ab Eb
Was I surprised, no not at all
Verse 2:
I called her yesterday, it should have been tomorrow
I could not keep the joy that was inside
I asked for her to tell me if she really loved me
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid it's moving without me

Verse 3:
And when I wake on a dreary Sunday morning
I open up my eyes to find that there's rain
And something strange within says, "Go ahead and find her
Just close your eyes, yeah
Just close your eyes and she'll be there"
Coda (repeat to fade):
Eb Ab Eb
She'll be there...
